Nan Whaley pledges to put Ohioans back to work in campaign video

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Dayton Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Nan Whaley today released a campaign video about the dignity of work and her dedication to bringing good-paying careers back to Ohio once she’s elected Governor.

“If there’s one thing people should know about me, it’s this: I believe in the dignity of work,” said Whaley in the video. “It will be my job as Governor to get up every morning and make sure this state is moving, innovating and investing fast enough and smart enough to meet the demands of the jobs and economy of the 21st century.”

Ohio has trailed the nation on job growth for five years, and Ohioans’ earnings are consistently lower than the nation’s median wage.

“I believe work is more than a paycheck. Work is who you are; it’s your identity,” continued Whaley. “I won’t rest until everyone who wants to work, can work.”

As Mayor of Dayton, Whaley has delivered results every single day. The City has been able to cut its unemployment rate in half by spurring more than $1 billion in investment in the city and establishing a manufacturing task force to grow and create jobs.

The video will be accompanied by a significant online ad buy across the state.
